I need some suggestions please! We're working on our lists for baby #3. No baby on the way yet, but we're going to start trying soon! :) We have two boys, Mason Cole and Tanner Gray. Suggestions for a little brother or sister? Our last name is two syllables and starts with a P.

I like Lennox better than Maddox and think it goes nicely with your boys.

Thanks for the input! I really love some of the names you suggested! And I'm glad you think Lennox fits. I'm so loving it. Any ideas for a good middle name? I've got a Mason COLE and a Tanner GRAY. We tend to like one syllable names in the middle, but we're not married to it...

Mn's for Lennox (keeping one syll like your other boys):
Lennox Tate
Lennox Pierce or Piers
Lennox Scott
Lennox Rhett

Other boys names that I think go well with Mason and Tanner:
Graham
Easton (nn East)
Cruz
Spencer
Crosby
Dawson
Beau
Lennon
Boden / Bodie
Blaise

I don't like Brynlee and Ellery is just ok.
How about:

Shiloh
Willa
Violet
Bridget
Daphne
Naomi
Delilah
Nina

Sorry it's taken me forever and a day to get back to this! Thanks so so much for your suggestions and middle name options. I asked my sister the other night what she thought of the name Lennox and she gave me the deer in the headlights look for a few minutes and then said, "Well, I've never thought of it as a name before, don't they do heating and cooling?" AAAAAHHH! There's a company in town called Lennox that DOES do something like that. Yikes. Would he forever be associated with it? I have a friend who just named her son Harrison and we have a sporting goods store called Harrison's Sports. Thoughts? Is Lennox off the table due to the company?

I think Lennox is FABULOUS with your boys.

Now, for a girl...I think the quirky-feminine names on your list like Honor and Amya are more interesting than the trendier tomboyish names like Brynn or Ellery (it still seems male to me...but maybe the Welsh Eleri instead? It's more like e-LAIR-ee then ell-UR-ee.)

Yay! :) This is getting me so excited. I thought I would have a horrendous time finding a name I loved to fit with my boys names. So here is what I'm thinking for a fn/mn combo...

Lennox Roman

Now, before you flinch, Roman is a name we both LOVE but are afraid it's a little too different, style wise, to be a first name in our sib set. With that in mind, what do you think? And be honest. My second choice would be Lennox Cade.

Alright, it sounds like my work on the boy name is done. Posh and masculine. Done, done, done. :) Of course, I'm sure once I mention it to DH he will rip it to shreds and tell me no. HA! That's what always seems to happen when I get excited about a name. ;)

Dr.Kae, I'm just not sure about Verity. It just doesn't do much for me. Thank you, though. I think the problem is he likes names that are ultra feminine and I want something unique and not too girly sounding. Oh well. We like what we like and that's why we have a terrible time naming our children! Which, is exactly why I'm starting early.
